MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. The financing of the program for the creation of the Angara family carrier rockets will be continued in full despite the country’s current economic hardships, a rocket and space industry source told TASS on Monday.

"The country’s financial-economic hardships will not affect the Angara program in any way. There will be no budget cuts and no additional funding is required. The money is available," the source said.

According to him, "it’s all about the industry resources."

The Angara rocket family is a new generation of space launch vehicles based on a universal rocket module with oxygen-kerosene engines. The family load capacity ranges from 1.5 to 25 tons. The carrier rockets of the Angara family are intended to replace the Proton carrier rockets.
